Watched this the other night.

While the transfer was far from great, it was ok. Once the story drew you in, it became easy to forgive the misgivings and just bask in the greatness of the movie.

Fabulous stuff.

Sorry to dredge up this old thread, but I just watched this title again tonight and still can't state enough how great the movie itself really is.

It's also a title that justifies keeping the HD DVD players as it still isn't out on BD yet. Strangely enough, not a lot of titles that were on HD DVD that were then put on BD seemed to justify repurchasing the BD versions (in fact, in some cases, the BD looks worse because the title's been altered via DNR, EE, lame filtering, etc....as some people have stated in the Apollo 13 threads).

Something else that's kind of funny, is that they have a "Universal Legacy Series" DVD for about $25 on Amazon as of now, but you can get a significantly better HD DVD version for about $7 brand new.

If you've seen this movie before, you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't, this should be an absolute blind buy.

*************************************************

Still looking for a movie theatre that shows movies the way they're SUPPOSED to be viewed...



...with a bitrate meter and screencaps.

I love The Sting, it was the second title I purchased after I got my HD DVD player.I'm surprised The Sting has not come to BD yet as it was a huge hit in its day, $156 mil back in 1973 which is equivalent to about $678 mil today.
